If Zac Efron has been your celebrity crush since High School Musical premiered in 2006, you might be slightly devastated to know that the actor is rumored to be off the market these days. While you wait for him to break up with his new bae so Zac can once again be single and ready to mingle (leaving the option of dating a fan open, of course), grab your Ben & Jerry's and let's take a look at Zac's dating history.

Is Zac Efron currently dating anyone?

In January 2020, Zac was reported to be dating actress Halston Sage. According to Us Weekly, the were "in a serious relationship and in love." The pair reportedly spent the holidays together in Santa Barbara and the romance has continued into the new year.

If Halston's name sounds familiar, it's because the two reportedly dated previously after meeting on the set of the 2014 movie Neighbors.

Their relationship back then was never confirmed, but they were once spotted flirting at a Lakers game together.

Of course, a lot has changed since January. Zac has reportedly been quarantining in Australia throughout the coronavirus pandemic and it's unclear whether or not Halston is with him. He was spotted with a girl in early July in Byron Bay, New South Wales, but it seems like the two might just be friends. S0, we're going to have to assume that Zac and Halston are still together because we have no evidence to prove otherwise, but there's a chance the relationship didn't make it past the pandemic.

Who Has he dated in the past?

Zac has dated his fair share of models and actresses, but, if he really is dating Sarah, this will be his first athlete, that we know of. Here's a look back at Zac's extensive dating history:

Of course, I don't have to remind you that Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens dated for 5 years back in the early 2000s. The pair met on the set of High School Musical when they were just teenagers, but ended things in December 2010. Since then, the two have "completely lost contact," which is so unfortunate because I was still holding out hopes that Troy and Gabriella were IRL endgame.

Even though the two don't speak as much, there's no hard feelings. Vanessa recently commented how grateful she was to have dated Zac Efron when she did. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter Awards Chatter Podcast, Vanessa said that the relationship helped her deal with her sudden rise to stardom.

"We kinda blew up. It was this massive phenomenon all of a sudden and all eyes were on me,” she recalled. “And it’s just a really weird foreign thing to go through, and by being in a relationship, I feel like it kind of kept me stabilized and grounded, and I had someone to lean on who was going through it as well."

Though their relationship eventually ended, Vanessa said there was instant chemistry when she first met Zac. Vanessa's moved on to boyfriend, Austin Butler, and Zac's doing his own thing, but at least, we can rewatch HSM movies to relive those cute Troy and Gabriella days.

While Lily and Zac are hanging out a lot these days in order to promote their new film, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, where Zac plays infamous serial killer Ted Bundy, the two actually dated on and off between 2012 and 2013. Though the relationship was never officially confirmed, they were often seen together, holding hands at Disneyland, and even spending Valentine's Day together in 2012.

The two broke up in 2016, after about two years of dating. Zac deleted all of his pics with Sami off his Instagram and even unfollowed her, leaving many to think the relationship didn't end on the best terms.

Another movie, another romance. Zac was suspected to be dating his Baywatch costar Alexandra Daddario back in 2017. They were super flirty together in interviews promoting the movie, and they posted adorable pics on social media, but their relationship was never confirmed.

Sarah Bro (2019)

Rumors that Sarah and Zac were dating began circulating after the two were spotted at a UFC fight in Las Vegas together where they sat ring side. According to a source from E! News, the two arrived to the fight together and "looked like they were having a great time." While they were seen "smiling and laughing in their seats," they were "not overly publicly affectionate," though the two did leave the event together.

The night before the UFC match, both Zac and Sarah posted Instagrams from a Los Angeles Kings hockey game. While they didn't post anything together, it can be assumed that the attended the event together.
